Trivia

Peter Berg had planned to make this film before Battleship (2012), but Universal Pictures wanted him to reverse the priorities, and he relented. See more »

Goofs

The Chinook helicopters in the actual events were special operations variants known as MH-47s. These models have many visual differences from regular Army Chinooks, including their overall black color, refueling probe and radar. They were also flown only by the elite 160th SOAR. The Chinooks in the film, however, are regular army CH-47s without the above-mentioned features, are painted light green and also have the 1st Cavalry Division's insignia painted on the nose, which wouldn't have been on 160th SOAR helicopters.

Accurate, schmaccurate
29 March 2014 | by amatrimonialsSee all my reviews

Some have cast doubts on the verisimilitude of parts of this picture. Of course, those who impugn whether some events really happened or whether they happened the way they are depicted in the movie neither underwent the kind of training Navy S.E.A.Ls do nor did they ever find themselves in circumstances remotely approaching those of the four comrades. We do not know what punishment the human body is truly capable of withstanding until we are put to an extreme test, gods forbid.

All I can say is that, regardless of whether this movie is accurate 100%, 0% or anything in between, it brought me to tears. I can honestly not remember the last time a Hollywood movie did that.

Very moving, very poignant, very touching. For that alone, as well as for keeping me riveted for the whole of two hours (which is quite a feat given my cynical and jaded nature), it deserves unalloyed plaudits.
